Military Tuition Assistance

As a member of the military, you may be eligible for the Tuition Assistance (TA) educational benefit that will assist with the cost of tuition. Concordia Theological Seminary is approved directly with the Department of Defense (DoD) to receive tuition assistance benefits from the various military branches.

Since each branch handles TA differently, contact your military branch for details on your eligibility and the process for submitting the TA form. Your approved TA form will need to be submitted to the Registrar who is also the Military Tuition Assistance Official for the seminary. Email:; Fax: 260.452.2285.

Return of Military Tuition Assistance Funds Policy

For those students receiving Military Tuition Assistance (TA) funds from the Department of Defense (DOD), any unearned TA funds will be returned on a proportional basis through at least the 60 percent portion of the period for which the funds were provided. TA funds are earned proportionally during an enrollment period, with unearned funds returned based upon when a student stops attending. TA funds are provided based on students completing the entire enrollment period for which the assistance was provide. The enrollment period is computed from the “classes begin” date to the “last day of classes” date.

The Seminary is required to return any unearned TA funds to the military branch that provided the funds regardless of the reason for withdrawal (service-related or otherwise). The student will then owe the Seminary the amount that was returned. If the student stopped attending due to a military service obligation, the Seminary will work with the student so the return of TA funds does not result in a student debt for the returned portion.
